Gerald Wallace didn’t even make it to training camp with the Warriors. Wallace, acquired in the David Lee deal with Boston - which was officially completed Monday - turned around and headed to Philadelphia on Friday. The Warriors traded Wallace to the 76ers for 6-foot-11 forward/center Jason Thompson. Thompson, 29, has spent all seven of his NBA seasons with Sacramento.

Gerald Wallace: Breaking down whether the vet fits into the Warriors' plans

The journeyman is set to enter his 15th season with his sixth NBA team. Besides his contract, Wallace may not have much to provide for Golden State. When the Golden State Warriors swapped David Lee for Gerald Wallace and Chris Babb, their primary intent was to minimize the luxury tax bill created after Draymond Green inked a lucrative deal this offseason. Additionally, when factoring in Lee's desire for a fresh start and larger role, it was only a matter of time before a trade would go down. In dealing Lee for Wallace, Golden State saved roughly $24 million in total as our own Sam...

Boston Celtics finalize several summer transactions

David Lee, Jae Crowder deals completed, Jonas Jerebko, Amir Johnson, and Perry Jones III all introduced. The Celtics front office was very busy today.  They made several roster moves, but most of them have been known about for weeks. Amir Johnson and Jonas Jerebko officially signed weeks ago but the team waited until the rest of the transactions were complete to introduce them to the fans.  That seems fitting since all the moves this summer essentially added or maintained depth for Brad Stevens's squad. The David Lee trade was made official today (so long Gerald Wallace and Chris Babb)....

Thomas Robinson is a player the Nets have always wanted and the Nets are a team Thomas Robinson has always wanted to play for.  And now, finally, they got it done. The Nets had scouted him extensively in 2012 when he was at Kansas but then went for Gerald Wallace at the deadline and traded the pick.  T-Rob meanwhile went from team to team, a top five pick who couldn't stick in Portland, Sacramento, Houston or Denver.  Then, when the Nuggets decided to waive him last February, the Nets saw their chance.  They offered him a 10-day deal. All he had to do was clear waivers. Enter Sam...

Logical "potential corollary moves" for the Boston Celtics after acquiring David Lee

What's next for the Celtics? As the salary cap contortionists of the NBA, the Boston Celtics have the flexibility to execute their transactions in various ways this summer. Common thought suggests they'll waive their cap holds and trade exceptions to sign Amir Johnson using cap space, but the Gerald Wallace for David Lee trade opens up the possibility of them retaining their exceptions to give them more trading versatility going forward this summer. The Lee trade isn't even done yet, according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, who adds that the Celtics are "hard at work on potential...
